Who left the $5,000 tip at a restaurant in Washington, DC? According to CP N.America, some think it was Willie Robertson from TV reality show, “Duck Dynasty.” Others believe it was Sean Hannity, from on Fox News “Hannity.” An article in The Blaze, Feb. 12, 2014, verifies that Sean paid the tab and left the tip.

All the reports agree that Willie Robertson and his wife, Korie, enjoyed dinner with some major political leaders, on the night of the State of the Union address. Those who attended the late night dinner party with Willie at Ruth’s Chris Steak House in D.C. were Sean Hannity, Senator Ted Cruz, Mark Levin, and Newt Gingich and his wife, Callista.

However, the reports are conflicting over the generous tipper. The bill at the steak house was $5,000. TMZ claims that Willie paid the bill and left the $5,000 tip to the two waiters. However, an inside source told TVNewser, that Sean Hannity paid the bill and tip. "Hannity knows from service industry work: during college he worked as a dishwasher, bartender and short order cook."

Plenty of pictures flooded social media outlets, to support the fact that Willie was with the congressmen and senators on the night of the 2014 State of the Union address. They were guests of Vance McAllister and South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham.

The two waiters who worked that night will never forget it their experience. The night was profitable for them and the owners of the steak house. Normally, the Ruth Chris Steak house closes at 10:30, but that night, their dinner guests didn’t finish their meal until 2 a.m.
